You will have to determine z-score (use a z-table with the information you are given), then use the z-score formula to find x (the length).
Z-score formula is this:
z = (x - mean)/sd
mean = 24.3
sd = 1.8
Once you find the z-score in the table, substitute the z-score and the data above into the formula and solve for x.
